So happy to see this!
U2 wins the Golden Globe for Best Original Song!
Bono and the boys wrote Ordinary Love for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, the biopic about the life of Nelson Mandela. They of course talked about Mr. Mandela in their acceptance speech, explaining how their own relationship with the late leader influenced the song.
They also gave some love to Coldplay's Chris Martin, who apparently helped them write this tune!
The other nominees in the category were Let It Go, from Frozen, Atlas, from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Please Mr. Kennedy, from Inside Llewyn Davis, and Sweeter Than Fiction, from One Chance.

We'll take any good news at this point!
Nelson Mandela is currently fighting for his life in a hospital, and things haven't looked good for quite some time.
While he remains in critical condition, we're getting word that he is indeed responding well to treatment!

Nelson Mandela’s daughter Zindziswa is being sued by boxing promoter Duane Moody over claims that she victimized him in the negotiations over a boxing match he was supposed to organize.
Here’s what happened: Zindziswa told Duane she wanted him to organize a match between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. She estimated it would pull in $100 million, and that Duane could take 15% of it. BUT, part way through negotiations, Zindziswa backed out and even left Duane stranded at a hotel she was allegedly supposed to be paying for.
Duane wants $7.5 million in damages.
Um, we have no idea.
Need more details.
$7.5 millions seems crazy, though!
